HELLO EVERYONE! This week was really good! We are still trying to figure out our area! Doing a lot of following up and tracting! We have met some pretty cool people though! We had a lot of fun this week! We are still teaching Latu! She is so amazing! She is so close! I'm so excited for her and her family!! Other than her we are really trying to find some new people to teach!! yay! We also got to go to the temple! I love going to the temple here in Perth! It is such an amazing place! I had a lot of firsts this week!
1. I fell off my bike for the first time in 9 months! I wasn't paying attention and ran into a pole in the middle of the sidewalk and did a front flip over my handle bars! It was pretty epic!
2. I ate balut!!! Some members brought us some, basically if you don't know what balut is it's a Filipino street food. Fertilized duck eggs! Basically it is a baby duck inside of a boiled egg, complete with feathers, beak, the whole deal! It actually isn't that bad though, the texture isn't very nice and you can't look at it, but the taste isn't too bad. haha!
I hope you all have a wonderful week! You are all amazing! I love you all! I know that this work is the greatest work we can do! I'm so grateful for the opportunity to serve in Western Australia! Especially in Thornlie ward! I wish you all the best! Love yous!
Love, Sister Penrod xxxxxx
